Jolt!

Ever have one of those songs that comes along and, no matter what’s going on, it cheers you up and pretty soon you can’t help smiling? (the song is “Loving You Is Easy” by Chris August)

Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. That moment you’re almost laughing out loud because you actually feel so happy and good!

They can come along when you least expect it. Maybe it’s just the undying optimist in me that can never be suppressed for very long. I suppose that’s one of the best things I’m thankful for, that God gave me a laugh that will never stop, forever.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 is, perhaps, the best way to show this. Specifically, I’m thinking about verse 4:

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

Bad things only last so long before good things come along. Look for those good things! Smile! Laugh!! Dance!!!
